 ENG121 Narrative Arc

  • Wk 2: Personal-Professional Narrative Paper


Your paper will have an introduction paragraph that will include your thesis sentence and identifies your chosen major or career path, and a conclusion paragraph that helps resolve the narrative. Additionally, your body paragraphs will be expected to address these ideas:

  • Describe an experience that significantly shaped who you are as a person and informed your personal ethos.
    • Use clear and descriptive language to evoke a sense of the gravity of this experience.
  • Interpret the events that brought you to your choice of major or career path.
    • Why is it meaningful to you?
    • Is it your passion or is it more practical?
    • If it’s a practical choice, how do your passions feed into it?
  • Provide an example of one of the major challenges to achieving your goal.
    • Instead of focusing on a logistical and time-based challenge (such as attaining a degree and/or certification), discuss a challenge rooted in the particular skills you will have to demonstrate, or a mindset challenge or some combination of both. 
  • Analyze how your personal ethos prepares you to overcome the above challenge(s).
